COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, originally a summer seasonal, has been getting raves since becoming a year round offering in 1996. Garrett Oliver, a student of English brewing and beer history, uses English malts and hops to brew his EIPA in the classic, heavily-hopped style of the 19th century beers created for British soldiers serving in India.

marv3mania (161) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Opaque brownish-orange color. Medium white head which dissipates quickly with no lacing. Very citrus-y, floral scent. Similar taste, though not as strong as the aroma, hoppy with a touch of malt. Smooth, crisp feel with good amount of carbonation. Overall, a good beer, though far from the best IPA I’ve tried.

Toffee, fruits, grains and hint of pine in the aroma. Amber with a off white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Light body with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice standard IPA.

Dark amber body with low head. Aroma has medium caramel, toasty, nutty notes with light woody background. Taste has high earthy bitterness right upfront with light citrus sweetness, some hebral notes, floral, pine character. Astringent after taste. Body is full, high carbonation.

spacecube (659) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
355ml can, pours golden orange brown with a small white head, pours clear. Aroma is caramel & toffee malt, with orange peel and floral notes. Light body, solid carbonation with a balanced crisp finish. Not a hop bomb, well crafted, tasty.

Peter_L (475) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med gräddigt vitt skum. Väldigt knuten doft men till slut kommer blommiga aromer och engelsk kola. Inte mycket till amerikansk humlebomb. Mjuk och len i smaken. Även här lyser humlearonerna med sin frånvaro.

chimpgibbon (219) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Malty sweet pale ale. Veering towards lagerish malts. Lightish body, moderate booze. Dry medium bitter end. Unremarkable but ok.

czar (3812) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
pours clear bright golden with a nice off-whtie head, some retention and alcing. pine, resin, candied oranges, toasted and caramel malts, some sweetness, brown sugar, some danky fruits. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, some booze, short to medium long grassy-spicy-citrusy-piney finish. a bit sweet for my liking but still decently crafted. just not my cup of tea. o-k.
